Couple Questions on Tack
I have a turtleneck, longsleve showmanship shirt that is pink with roses. It doesn't have cuffs or a collar. Am I allowed to wear this in a riding class like western pleasure? The shows are small and local, with usually about five in a class.

Can I use a medium oil saddle with a dark oil breastcollar, headstall, and reins? Or will it look funny? Horse is fleabitten gray with pink saddle blanket and show shirt plus black pants and cowboy hat. I'm having trouble matching

Yes, you can wear it for local shows just tuck it into your pants.

Ideally, all your tack should be the same oil but the reins can be darker if they are your functional reins. As long as the headstall isn't drawing attention to itself, you should be fine for an open show. Ditch the breastcollar. Nobody wears breastcollars in western pleasure.

If you provided pictures of your tack and outfit we could help you out more.
